Cult series The Booth at the End: Series 1 and 2 on DVD in July

9 June 2016

Chilling psychological TV series The Booth At The End wowed critics and audiences alike when it aired in the US (and is something of a favourite here at Outsider) and now this gripping thriller, created and written by Christopher Kubasik (What Lives Inside) and from Michael Eisner’s groundbreaking multi-platform studio Vuguru, comes to UK DVD for the first time.

A father whose child is dying of Leukaemia. An elderly woman who wants to restore her husband’s failing memory. A nun who no longer hears the voice of God. A man who wants to wipe out every trace of his second marriage. In desperation they each enter a Faustian pact with a mysterious man who always sits in the same seat at the local diner. The Man (Xander Berkeley – 24, Terminator 2), can make their deepest desire a reality, but only if they complete the task he assigns them – a task that can have extreme, even deadly, consequences.

One must rob a bank another must protect a little girl one has to make a number of people cry another is instructed to build a bomb and set it off in a crowded restaurant. Sometimes the assignments are in direct opposition to one another, sometimes the clients have to work together. Each story is revealed at close quarters from the same spot in the diner, through dialogue in which The Man shifts from confessor to therapist to puppetmaster. As the stories begin to intersect, some clients mess up or change their minds, while others complete their task only to discover that what they wished for isn’t what they really wanted after all.

The Booth at the End: Series 1 and 2 comes to UK DVD on 11th July 2016 from Simply media at the RRP £24.99.
